I'll tell ya one thing I wish they had....a cheap heading (compass) sensor without having to go to the full GPS. That'd make it pretty easy to relate readings to which way you were traveling re wind direction or flight pattern. Seems it'd a pretty easy thing to develop, with all the tech they've built in already.
The problem with a compass (try it at home) is unless it's flat, or a 3-axis compass with some leveling compensation, it won't work and it won't be cheap.
I guess if you fly straight without gaining any altitude, turn only with your rudder and keep your wings level, it would work though!
